Evan Wier Jones

Blasingame, Burch, Garrard & Ashley PC

Evan Wier Jones grew up on St. Simons Island in Georgia. He attended the University of Georgia where he obtained his A.B. with general honors in 1988, followed by the University of Georgia Joseph Henry Lumpkin School of Law. He graduated law school with his J.D. in 1991 before going on to serve in the U.S. Army Judge Advocate General’s Corps where he gained valuable experience as a prosecutor in both military and federal courts.

In the JACG, he served as trial counsel and as a Special Assistant United States Attorney for the 7th Infantry Division (Light) in Monterey, California. He also served as Trial Counsel for the 3/325th Airborne Infantry Regiment and the 173rd Airborne Brigade in Vicenza, Italy. For a number of years, he served on the defense side of personal injury claims, representing hospitals, nursing homes, and physicians in cases involved medical malpractice claims.

After defending these individuals and entities from 1995 to 2003, Evan ultimately decided to switch his practice to plaintiffs’ representation and litigation. Now, he works on behalf of injured victims who were harmed by medical institutions and professionals. His experience on both sides allows him a greater knowledge of how the process works and what tactics the defense will likely employ. He uses this knowledge to better fight for his clients’ rights.

Alongside co-counsel, Evan was instrumental in obtaining one of the largest nursing home arbitration verdicts in Georgia to this day. He also served as the lead counsel in Peterson v. Reeves, 315 Ga. App. 370 (2012), cert denied, 727 S.E. 2d 171.

The case became a defining example of psychiatrists’ duties to treat mentally ill patients under the standard of care in a voluntary outpatient setting, and was even cited in courts throughout the nation, as well as in scholarly articles regarding the rights of the mentally ill.

Along with his wife, Andrea, to whom he has been married for over 25 years, Evan has three children, Connor, Sarah Kate, and Jake. Connor was a member of the UGA Baseball Team, as well as a three-time member of the SEC Academic Honor Roll before being drafted by the New York Yankees as a pitcher.
